Maple Ridge, B.C. – Ridge Meadows RCMP continues to investigate the cause of a multi-vehicle collision which occurred earlier this week.
On October 30, 2022, at approximately 10:20 AM, Ridge Meadows RCMP frontline officers responded to multiple reports of a serious motor vehicle collision in the 22400 block area of Dewdney Trunk Road. Witness calls stated one person was trapped inside of a vehicle. BC Ambulance Services and Maple Ridge Fire Department responded and tended to people who sustained non-life-threatening injuries. BC Coroners Services also attended as, tragically, a 68-year-old man died on scene.
The Ridge Meadows Investigational Support Team and Integrated Collision Analysis Reconstruction Services Team attended and are assisting with the investigation.
The scope and scale to investigate a 7-vehicle collision scene like this does take time to consider all factors, States Corporal Julie Klaussner.
While a medical emergency could always be a factor in any collision incident, this is only one of multiple factors which police and all investigating units will look at and other considerations will include, time of day, speed, weather and road conditions. Our condolences go out to the family and friends of the man who tragically passed away.
